Even if the drains appear to be working perfectly, it’s still worth carrying out a CCTV pre-purchase drain survey.
If we detect early warning signs of drain damage, we can apply a quick, cost-effective patch treatment rather than have to carry out expensive and invasive excavation works to repair the pipe.

Do I have to get a pre-purchase drain survey?
If a pre-purchase drain survey isn’t mandatory, you should still carry one out to avoid unexpected costs after you move in.
If you discover damage to the drains before you buy the property, and repairs which need to be carried out can be covered by the existing owner’s home insurance or the cost could be negotiated off the purchase price.
But if you discover damage after the keys are in your hands, you’ll have to cover the costs yourself.
What happens during a pre-purchase drain survey?
You will then receive a detailed report of our findings, including full video of the survey and photos of any signs of blockage or damage. Should further works be recommended, we can provide a quote for cleaning, unblocking or repairs.
We use cutting edge, reliable CCTV cameras and our reports are legally recognised documents created using regulation-compliant reporting software provided by WinCan.
How do drains become damaged?
A blockage can also be caused by soil that which entered a pipe through cracks, which will be a reoccurring issue if the pipe isn’t fixed with a patch. These cracks can widen over time, until the pipe becomes so weak it collapses and has to be replaced.
Cracks form through age and erosion (common in old Victorian drains), root ingress from nearby trees or vibration from heavy vehicles or construction work.
The important thing is to catch problems early and not flush away blockages without identifying the cause with a CCTV survey, otherwise we lose all our valuable evidence.
